April 1 Is the date which has
been set for the University Band's
annual spring concert, William D.
Revelli, conductor of University
bands, announced yesterday.
There has been no special theme
arranged for the concert, but the
band is rehearsing a program

Republican, today submitted to the
Senate a resolution endorsing the
